Pan-Seared Halibut With Peach-Orange Sauce
Any mild, firm-fleshed fish will work in this recipe, but it's especially tasty with halibut. The sweetness of peach and the spark of mint add an unexpected kick to this quick and easy meal.
2 halibut fillets (6-8 oz each)
2 peaches (reserve a quarter of one with peel on, otherwise peeled and cored)
3 springs of mint
¼ cup orange juice
2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon canola oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Begin with the puree – cut the peaches and one of the sprigs of mint in small pieces, combine in food processor with the orange juice, sugar, and salt & pepper to taste.
Lightly season the fish with salt and pepper. Heat the oil on a stainless steel skillet over medium high heat. Add the fish, presentation side down, cooking for 3 minutes. Remove pan to oven for another 3-4 minutes. Return to stove top and cook on the other side for 30 seconds.
Serve fish over peach puree, garnished with thinly sliced peaches and mint sprigs.
